THURSDAY, MARCH IT, 1949 • —__ [•HI NATION TODAY ^ruman and Democratic Party ppear to Be Lost Leaders in love to Push Cause of Liberals WASHINGTON, March 16. «>»—President Truman and his Demo- 'k Party are beginning to look like lost eaders. \'ls happened In Congress in the past few days while Mr. Truman > vacationing in Morldn: 1. Ills civil rights program for Negroes was aboul hopelessly wrecked. 1. His nomination of his personal friend. Mon C. Wallgren, as clmlr- i«n of the National Security Resources Board, was shoved aside. 3. His rent control program was shot full of holes.

It's anybody's uess. What's wrong? Nothing mys- erious. The members of the Democratic /arty have a majority In Congress. Tils would seem to give them con- rol. It would, If they thought the ame or stuck together. They don't. Two Kinds of Democrats Roughly, there are two kinds of democrats: the Trumanltes who Mlow the president; atld the Son- :hern Democrats who BO their own *ay and vote against the other Democrats any time they please. When they rto this, they tenm JP with the Republicans who are !n a minority. This combination ives the Republicans and Southern Democrats a majority and puts the Jrumanltes in a minority. That's 'hat has been happening. Here are the figures: In the Senate—51 Democrats. 42 ^publicans. Total Senators: 95. But at least 20 of the Democrats re southerners. When the 20 switch >ver to the Republicans, that leaves !< Trumanltes against 02 opponents. In the House—263 Democrats, 171 Republicans, and one American La- Mr party member. At least 100 of che Democrats are Southerners, tviien .they join the Republicans, ihat's 271 against 163 Trumanltes. This is why the rejoicing of tht Trumanites over last full's democratic victory was pretty hollow. It fas a victory on paper—and only K) long as the Southerners piny •long with the Trumanltes. Civil Rights Issue Blamed On the civil rights program, the Southern Democrats- parted company with the Trumanltes and set »ut to wreck It with a filibuster. Caught in this meat-chopper, the frumanites In the Senate looked pitiful. That Is not an exaggeration. The Democrats outnumber the repayment money. Wallgren nomination. The Senate must approve before he can have the NSED job. But the committee vote yesterday to push aside Wallgren's nomination was 7 to 6. What happened? Senator Byrd of Virginia, Southern Democrat, threw his vote In with Hie six Republicans against Wall- the rent control gren. In the House bill favored by Mr. Trtimnn BLYTHEVILLE <ARK.)
